Peterborough Land Company Map (c.1880)

112

A fascinating map produced by the Peterborough Land Company in the early years of their existence. Formed in 1875 by local businessmen and professionals, the company’s aim was to buy up land, plan development and sell it on for profit.

This map was a proposal for the “Development of Central Peterborough – To The North of the Cathedral” and shows Central Park far left with Broadway (top), Park Road and Lincoln Road (bottom) feeding in from the right.
